    EVANSTON, Ill. - Following day one of the Northwestern Invitational, it is unclear just where the Southern Illinois men's and women's swimming and diving teams stand in the three-day competition. A malfunction of the meet manager scoring system prevented exact times and team results to be tabulated.

    Through the first round of the women's final events, sophomore Nora Bunford won the 50-breaststroke.

    On the men's side, the Salukis finished two in the top four of the 500-freestyle. Freshman Antonio Santoro and junior Jason Sigler scored for the Saluki men. Santoro broke the Norris Aquatics Center record in the 500-freestyle, however he finished second in the race.

    "We're swimming well right now," said head coach Rick Walker. "We're excited about where we sit and we are ready to put two more days together."

    The three-day invitational will continue Saturday with prelims to begin at 10 a.m. and finals to start at 5 p.m. Sunday's action will start at 9 a.m. with finals at 3 p.m.
